Today's rest day came at a great time. I will continue to schedule a rest day after my long run days, just makes sense.
I wanted to post the supplements I actually take. First, let me explain that most of my calories come from real food. However, here is a list of the current supplements I have used, with the exception of the Succeed products. I placed an order for what is listed and look forward to trying them out.
Multivitamin: GNC Megamen
Protein Powder: Nitrean - This is a blend of whey (isolates, concentrate, hydrolyzed), casein, and egg proteins from Atlarge Nutrition. Great taste.
Meal Replacement: Opticen - 1 serving contains 52g of protein and is a blend of whey, casein, and egg proteins from AtLarge Nutrition. The best tasting vanilla protein I've had yet.
Joint Support: - Puritan's Pride Triple Strength Glucosamin Chondroitin
Succeed Amino: - Enhanced endurance, reduction of mental fatigue, faster recovery, and immune system support.
Succeed CLIP2: - Energy, alertness, better recovery after long runs, and prevention of muscle breakdown during long runs.
Succeed S CAPS: - Alleviation of cramping, buffers to stabilize stomach, protection against hyponatremia, sodium and potassium in effective amounts, phosphate and citrate for energy production and delivers the correct amount of electrolytes
Clif Bars: - I love Clif bars! I know there not considered supplements but I do think they play an important part in my training, simply put, ...The Natural Energy Bar. I eat the regular Clif and the Builder's bars.
I'm looking to get a new multivitamin and I think I found one I like. I will do a post on the one I choose and why. This rest day has been great but I look forward to tomorrow's workouts. Have a great Monday night! - Jason The Running Man
